As the disparate portions of the healthcare continuum become more connected, the ability to collaborate effectively is a critical component of organizational home care success.
Think about the ways your home care organization collaborates with other providers, other organizations and your referral sources to provide superior care for patients. At McKesson, we’ve been thinking a lot about this issue. In fact, “Collaboration Is Key” was the theme of the recent 2015 McKesson Homecare & Hospice National Users’ Conference, and the theme resonated throughout many of the conference sessions.
For us, collaboration means working with our customers on both strategic and tactical levels to deliver the products and services that they find valuable. Our goal is their goal – collaborating to deliver better patient care that leads to better outcomes.
We collaborate with customers through such groups as our Home Care Advisory Council, the Homecare and Hospice National User Group, various customer panels, focus groups and roundtable discussions that senior 2 that home health and hospice organizations face, as well as how our products and services can help to overcome those challenges.
Looking across the healthcare landscape, we also collaborate by helping organizations collect, analyze and share critical data with provider partners. Our aim is to create home care success by helping increase efficiency, outcomes and financial performance.
In addition to collaboration, McKesson also is committed to the principles of balance, discipline and accountability. Our home care software solutions should be balanced to reflect the issues that are important to you, now and in the future. That would include clinical goals, regulatory issues, business intelligence, technology, connectivity and workflow.
We should be disciplined to do the right things at the right time, and we should be accountable for our actions. This last item is the glue that holds everything together.
You and your staff are on the front lines of care every day, helping patients improve or maintain their health, manage their chronic conditions and age in place with dignity and grace. Through collaboration, discipline, balance and accountability, McKesson is proud to be with you every step of the way.
